Today I am featuring My Main Squish. This simple small shop from etsy you will be able to find unique designs for shirts and also adorable sweat pants and leggings. Here is more from Whitney and Kennedy. Make sure you head on over to their shop and check them out.

 

Tell me a little bit about yourself, who you are, what your company is: 

Hello! We are Whitney and Kennedy. We are the owners of My Main Squish and we are also sister in laws, our husbands are brothers. We are both born and raised in Utah. Whitney has three little boys and a chocolate lab. I have a daughter and a mini Australian shepherd.  Our company is comfortable and cute kids clothing and also beanies and bows.

What happened in your life that helped your decision to actually create a small business?

We were on an annual family camping trip and Whitney and I were talking and decided that we could start making some beanies for our little ones. Then the idea expanded to shirts, leggings, sweatpants and bows. We both have bought clothing from small businesses and both had a hard time putting a whole outfit together by just looking at a shirt or a pair of pants separately when the shop has so many options. So we went into it with the idea of coming up with a whole outfit. So our costumers could either buy the whole outfit how we styled it or in separate pieces.

Where do you find inspiration:
We find our inspiration from our own children. My little girl loves cats and wears her cat ears around the house always. That is where we got the inspiration to make our “Meow” shirt. Whitney’s little boys love to be outside and her oldest has taken up snowboarding. That is where we got the inspiration to do the “Snowface” tee. Everything that we make is something we will dress our own kids in.

What is your favorite part about your small business? What is the most exciting part about what you do?
Our favorite part so far is seeing how our costumers put together our pieces and hearing their feedback. Some style it how we have and some have totally changed it up, and we absolutely love seeing that!  We are both summer girls so we are so excited to come out with fun and new styles for the warmer months! Bring on the pineapples and anchors!!

Working with Katie from KS Hair is always a dream she is magic with hair. So if you are ever needing a loose simple up-do or color magic give her a message cause she is so amazing! I love that I found someone in Spokane that I could connect with in this area. We truly share the same vision on things and when you have that its GOLD.

We connected with Amanda and she seriously killed it for this shoot. She moves ever so slightly and I couldn’t get enough photographing her. Thank you girl for braving the cold!

Showing you all some more ideas for a romantic hairstyle that you can use as a bride or bridesmaid. For this look Katie did two braids with a knotted ponytail.

Looking back at the families that I was able to be apart of this last year brings a smile to my face. I had so much fun photographing them. Getting to know them better and staying in contact with them still. It truly is a family unit that I love to create. They are investing in me to photograph who they are and what brings them together.

Snow covered ground, sequin rose gold dress, loose organic florals. All of this makes for such a great way to show some inspirations for your bridesmaid. Katie from KS Hair and I teamed up and collaborated together to bring you some easy ideas to throw together as a bridesmaid.

For the dresses they were found at Forever 21 and Nordstrom Rack which are both reasonable prices for a simple statement dress. The flowers are from Trader Joes and also I went and cut some branches from a spruce tree to add some outdoor greenery. I had never put together a bouquet before so I just headed to Pinterest and found some tutorials that were simple for what we wanted to create. We are both big fans of the loose florals which I am super happy that they are now a big trend of the 2016 wedding season! Below I talk about how Katie created the hair. Enjoy!

Katie created a mix of an inverted fishtail braid and a bubble technique to get this simple hair style below. Love how if you would like all your hair out of your face you can create such a romantic look with softness.

For the Lace dress Katie created of a messy side fishtail braid. Which adds elegance without being the normal tight up-do.

2015. Whoa…It was such a year of change and growth. We moved to Spokane, Washington from Burbank, California in March and with that whirl wind in itself; I couldn’t have asked for a better year to get started here in Spokane. I have already met so many amazing photographers who have quickly became friends. This industry even though it is so large, the people that work in it are so willing to help. Really I am so thankful for that because I feel like it wouldn’t survive without everyones help.

With all of that I was so shocked by booking a few weddings here after I moved to Spokane. Honestly, I was not planning on really photographing any weddings as we just moved. But God had other plans and he truly showed up! It makes me even more excited for this year 2016. Already my brides have been super! They are working hard at planing their wedding day and I can’t wait to be there with them along their side.

Before I left California I was able to have the honor of photographing with Lydia Messenger Photography. If you live in California you definitely need to check her out. She is just the sweetest and so talented.

To everyone who commissioned me this last year I want to say THANK YOU! Thank you for inviting me to be apart of some of the momentous and long-planned days and moments of your lives. It really is an honor and I am so blessed by you.

Enjoy some of my favorites from wedding, engagement, and a little styled shoot from this last year.
